A little less than a month ago, the debate to expand protection networks in major league stadiums was opened after May 30 a foul line connected by Albert Almora Jr. of the Cubs hit the head of a girl from Two years in the Minute Maid Park of the Astros. Since that day, the family has kept secret the state of health of the little girl, until today.
According to information from ABC, family lawyer Richard Mithoff, reported that the girl suffered a fractured skull due to the ball, which also caused brain edema, multiple contusions and subdural bleeding. She also mentions that the two-year-old girl suffers from recurrent seizures and that at the moment she is recovering at home and takes medication to reduce the latter.
The family has wanted to maintain anonymity at all times, so their identity remains reserved as they have asked for privacy to cope with the hard time. In addition, they wanted to thank the Houston Astros for their support at all times and the fans for the displays of affection and concern for the child.
Only last Sunday, at Dodger Stadium, a teenager was hit in the head by a foul line connected by Cody Bellinger, which prompted the Dodgers to announce that they will expand the protection networks in Chavez Ravine to avoid these mishaps, thus joining to the White Sox and the Nationals as the only teams that have announced plans to expand the protective meshes.
